    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Valessa Robinson was 15 when she helped her friends kill her mother in a Tampa suburb in 1998 and 17 when she was convicted of third-degree murder. Now 30, Robinson is scheduled to be released from prison in Florida on Friday.......

    The murder and Robinson's subsequent trial made the teen infamous. During trial, her defense attorney dressed her in schoolgirl clothes. Gone was Valessa's previous attire of baggy jeans and colored nail polish. The brutal murder and the lengthy trial were covered extensively in local and national media.

    Wow, a whopping 15 years for brutally murdering your very own mother, might as well give her a pat on the back. :banghead:

    BBM: And grand theft auto too. Now she's going to be a normal productive adult citizen? Where would she learn those tools from?

    I want to believe Jon Whispel when he expresses remorse; however, I'm not so sure 5 more years will have "paid" for his crime. I am very sorry to see Valessa Robinson get early release! Murderers (IMO) should never be eligible for early release. In a more perfect world, they would serve life with out parole at the very least. Instead, let dope smokers or some other non-violent prisoners out early.

    Oh, god in heaven.
    DON'T let her out ! Saw a crime show on this case a few years back, if I can find it I'll post a link. Horrendous.
    It doesn't matter, imo, if you're high on drugs or in some sort of frenzy... you do something like this and you are responsible.
    A 30-year old is capable of committing any number of crimes. What---she was a good, model prisoner ? There are most likely plenty of those--while they're incarcerated. It doesn't mean they should be free.
    If murdering your own parent doesn't deserve life without parole, or worse, I don't know what does.
    There's more I could add, but it would be best not to do so. :gaah: Smh.
    :moo:

    Rest in gentle peace, Vicki , no one can hurt you anymore. You are not forgotten !
